If Player B is just "a player you know," and you state that you know both players skill levels quite well, then Player A must be "a player you know" as well. Why not contact Player A, so you can have all sides of the story? It couldn't hurt... then you would be able to form a more well rounded opinion on the situation, having heard from all sides.

There is no way that a TD would want to have a 1st round match replayed. It can throw off the timing of the bracket in many ways. There had to be a reason better than, "Well, Player A complained a whole lot and sicked the promoter on me." to get him to make that decision.

Did you ever play the game of "telephone" in elementary school? It's a simple game that teaches us all that things get lost in translation... very easily. Plus, remember that being human means that we are fallible. Nobody says the right thing, makes the right decision or understands others perfectly, 100% of the time.

Get the whole story... from all sides... and you might find that the situation wasn't nearly as foul as it may have seemed. Sometimes we just need to have a little more faith in people.
Dude. It WASN'T the TD's decision. READ. It was the event promoter. Who is a very close friend of Player A.

Everything of yours that I have READ is hearsay.

It's unbelievable how many people there are out there that are ignorant to the possibility that they might not know everything of which they speak.

Get some perspective, man.

You claim I am somehow misled, but don't provide a different angle.

The angle you are providing is what you were told, not what you saw. Can you see the difference?

But its good straight true hearsay from reportedly trusted sources.

Hey, after all, it probably is, more or less, true.

What blows my mind is that as a group, we here at AZ pretty much all give great lip service and respect for those in the service that sacrificed for our rights, yet we at the same time, toss those rights rights out the window.

I, uh, tried to play. Lost my first match, then ground my way to the second day, at which point the Pool Gods saw fit to toss me out in 13th-16th.

Good thing we're not in a courtroom. However, perhaps this is a metaphor for a courtroom, or one could consider this the courtroom of public opinion. But if that is the case, if this were a courtroom, the objection would have to be raised by an interested party, that's none of us. Since we're speaking in metaphors, one might say that player 'b' had died since he lost and his existence was extinguished as far as the tournament was concerned. If that's true, then his statement could be considered a dying declaration and would therefore be admissible in court and it is also further corroborated by TD. Objection over-ruled.
I guess it all depends on your perspective

Didn't you knock Player A out of the Tourney? If so, good on you!
